Thoughts: When our children were little, they delighted in asking me questions I couldn’t answer. One school morning we were scrambling around, finding the lost mitten, smoothing the crumpled homework – you know the drill.
When we opened the back door, we could barely see the garage through the heavy fog.
“Mama, what is fog?”
“I don’t know,” I admitted, “but we’ll look it up in the encyclopedia* after school.”
And we did. “Fog is a cloud come close to earth.” Short. Easily understood. Beautiful.
One of Jesus’ uncountable gifts was his ability to answer questions so perfectly that his questioners were silenced.
Discussion: Which was most important in Jesus’ earthly ministry?
(a) his teaching (b) his answers to his enemies (c) his miracles
Activity: Learn one useful and/or interesting fact.
*Encyclopedia – a comprehensive reference book, still invaluable.
